My husband and I have been going to Las Vegas for many years and every year we stop at this buffet at least once for dinner. Its become a tradition. The customer service it amazing, the food is always fresh and delicious, the champagne and wine bar is a extra plus. Definitely worth it!

The food was alright for the price and the meal came with alcohol which made the price a bit better, but some of the food needed to be refreshed. The Crab legs were decent as stated by my companion and the desserts were very good!I wouldn't go back, but it wasn't a bad meal. The staff are on the ball... More

We enjoyed the breakfast buffet in December and are going again in March. There is a good variety of everything. Excellent bacon, and I am picky about my bacon haha! The coffee is delicious too!

This buffet used to be one of the best on the strip, many years ago. When I went for dinner on a recent business trip, the food has deteriorated significantly. The crab legs were old and dried out, the workers looked tired and slow. The sushi looked like pre-made sushi from a factory, kind of like those you would find... More

This buffet is just ok. Not the worst, not the best. The shrimp with cocktail sauce were actually very good. I just did not think the quality of food overall justified the price.

Went for breakfast meeting. Not an overly huge buffet but good choices. Service VERY slow. 1 person for something like 10 tables. Terrible. Again another example of mgmt penny pinching on the most important part : service. There are much better places but if your staying in the hotel its the only buffet.

Hubby had a lot of the Asian dishes - said he enjoyed. Not a bad price for a good Vegas buffet and Id choose this place for breakfast over the... More

Stayed at the Mandalay Bay for four days and ate at this buffet a couple times. Hot crab legs and a wide selection of food. Loved the dessert and the meats here was far more tender than other high end buffets. Easy to navigate around and get your food as well. Could get very crowded around dinner time but most... More
